Rabòday

Rabòday is a rhythm of traditional dance music played to the drum and is arranged to electronic music.[2][3][4][5][6]

EtymologyEdit

Rabòday is a name borrowed from one of the hundreds of traditional Vodou rhythms, one that is at every base of Haitian music.[2]

OriginsEdit

Rabòday emerged in the mid-2000s and was inspired by Rasin music, which is the mixture of traditional Haitian rhythms and with pop-rock music since the 1980s. As in Rasin, Rabòday talks about society's problems.[1]

RhythmEdit

Rabòday has a 4/4 dance rhythm.[1]
